Proceeds from Sales of 6 Homes Go to Boys and Girls Club
TWIN FALLS • Six homes in the Golden Eagle subdivision will be supporting local children for years to come.
Several years ago, American Real Estate and Appraisal donated land to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Magic Valley. Local developers, builders and club officials put their heads together and decided to turn that land into six residential lots with homes.
Proceeds from the sale of the homes, plus the cost of the land, will go to the nonprofit’s endowment fund, Executive Director Lindsey Westburg said. It’s estimated to total more than $300,000.
“They have the possibility of really changing the landscape of the Boys and Girls Club,” Westburg said. “We’re really proud of this project.”
The builders involved include James Ray Construction, Lance LeBaron Homes, Peterson Brothers Construction, TKO Homes, Wolverton Homes and Weather Vane Homes. EHM Engineers was the developer.
The 1,500 square-foot house at 1353 Flint St. is featured in the Parade of Homes with a listing price of $184,900.
“It’s just a very good organization,” Wolverton Homes owner Gary Wolverton said. “It’s a pretty sizable donation.”
Wolverton served on the club’s board for several years.
The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home won best exterior in its price range during the judging prior to the parade.
“It’s a really cute home for the price,” Wolverton said.
All six homes are located near the future South Hills Middle School, making them an ideal spot for families, he said. Westburg said two of the homes have already sold.
